This is one of my #greenbabies that went completely wild on me this past year. Most of them just mildly pushed the limits, but this girl did not give a good and blessed damn. So now I am slowly trying to bring these branches under control, by guiding them closer to the center. I am hoping they root strong, because I am enjoying the beautiful lines she’s created, I just don’t want her to topple. I gave her some extra weight, and it’s my biggest pleasure. I finally got myself a hummingbird feeder! I found this painted one about 3-4 weeks ago, but at the time they didn’t have the clear food that I wanted [so I could see the painted flower better] and I haven’t had a chance to go back. But today I was at a few of my big box accounts so I checked, and I am so glad... I was expecting to get the clear one, but after reading all the labels (who does that?) I went with this red one, because I read that it wasn’t food coloring, and it was due to the added vitamins and calcium... which the mamas need to have stronger shells, and protect the babies. Once I read that, I knew I needed to upgrade. If my spinach doesn’t pack the same punch, why wouldn’t it be the same for our furry, feathered and finned friends? So, here I am... Gaia incarnate, doing my best to be a better steward. At any rate. It was still light out when I got home from the yoga studio [early] because I was not feeling “it”.. or today. So I worked in the garden instead, and thank you... I feel better. Today was not our best. But now. I feel better. Tomorrow, the sun shall rise again. (I totally predicted that to Bear this afternoon) You are welcome. πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ½‍β™€οΈπŸŒž #beeamazingtoyoself #oliviasthrivehive #oliviaandherpatiofriends #colormeolivia #oliviacolorgoddess #thebedrockunicorn #edgeofchill #hummingbird #mothernature
Our hip is settling back into place, after a brief detour... today is my third day of rest. Im taking my time moving this morning after a late night. So I have been sitting out here among my “children”... listening to my birds, my chattering little fountain, and whatever topics my thoughts are interested in. The body has chosen to remain still, but my mind is in constant motion, so we all understand that tomorrow we begin anew. So yeah... the magic’s still happening. As Always, BEE Amazing to Yo’Self!! And, I hope you have a day as beautiful, as you are. πŸπŸ’–πŸ”₯πŸ™‹πŸ½‍♀️ #myreligion #meditation #11minutes #myyogaeverydamnday #oliviasthrivehive #mygreenbabies #colormeolivia #oliviasmegapod #oliviaandherpatiofriends #theaccidentalmentor #oliviacolorgoddess #thebedrockunicorn #meditationwitholivia #mygreenbabies #crows #birds #fountain #waterislife #sounds #friends #beeamazing #beeamazingtoyoself
I have to work again this Saturday... but it’s a light day, and I get to do what I love doing... talking πŸ˜‚ [to] and teaching students!! πŸ€“ And because of my super heavy weekend previously, with the patio cleaning and then my crazy work week all over the Bay, I missed a few days out here. So here I am this morning saluting the sun [beautiful as always] suuuuuper early... Ahem, “for a Saturday”, but it was so gorgeous at 6:30 that it has me actually looking forward to Summer mornings out here. So I am actually glad I didn’t sleep in... today. But tomorrow is MY day!! And I hope this reminds you find time in your own busy schedules and lives to love yourself today. And most importantly, remember that your job is not your life... but the relationship that you have with it, determines the kind of life you will have. So make sure there’s a healthy respect between the two of you. Now. Go BEE Amazing to Yo’Self... and to others. πŸπŸ’–πŸ”₯ #beeamazing #beeamazingtoyoself #colormeolivia #oliviacolorgoddess #thebedrockunicorn #theaccidentalmentor #yogaeverydamnday #meditation #myreligion #patioyoga #oliviasthrivehive #oliviaandherpatiofriends #mygreenbabies #iheartsucculents #succulentlover #oliviasmegapod

Taking 20 to do a little meditation and some stretches. I went straight to work this morning, so I’ve been doing little ‘mini’ yoga sessions in between each step out here. It’s all part of the process. Like my dear friend, @jesalyneatchel always says... make everything sacred.  #oliviasthrivehive #colormeolivia #rainbowyoga #beeamazingtoyoself #oliviaandherpatiofriends #thebedrockunicorn #theaccidentalmentor #edgeofchill #yogaeverydamnday #11minutes #myreligion #meditation #makeeverythingsacred
In order to change the outside... sometimes you have to bring the focus inside. Its time for Phase II and I am working on my garden patio this weekend. Prince Radio is on Pandora, the Bear is diving in Monterey, and my lunch is in the fridge. I’ve got everything I need to get things done. Peace. Music. Food. Looks like a perfect Saturday is on the horizon. #beeamazingtoyoself #oliviaspatiofriends #oliviasthrivehive #prince #mygreenbabies #succulentlover #colormeolivia #oliviacolorgoddess #thebedrockunicorn #theaccidentalmentor #changes #transformation
A silly mini adventure with a coworker who managed to find time to have lunch with me... we stopped by a candy store, I discovered the wonders of Amazon Books, I got to pose with some muppet pillows... and we got free ice cream with our lunch. It was a good day. #felixfelicis #maythe4thbewithyou #oliviasmegapod #starwars #friendship #girlsday #oliviasthrivehive #msoliviasneighborhood #muppets #ilovesugar #colormeolivia #oliviacolorgoddess #frohawk #galaxyhair
Sitting here just pondering life... getting ready to spend some time on my garden patio. The Bear is doing laundry, because he’s going diving tomorrow while I work on the house. I changed out of my work pants and into my favorite galaxy pants... but kept on my ‘May the 4th’ tribute shirt, and just started chuckling as my mind started to ramble this... “Hmmm. With my FroHawk, there’s only enough hair for one puff, and on this holy day, a single bun makes me...Padme. Mother to Twin Jedi’s (Leia just doesn’t ‘practice’). Wait. What? My hair is a puff, not a bun? Yeah. I know. I’m the “Black Padme”. I rock rough and stuff with my Afro Puff ✊🏽 Haha. And look on my shirt! The first ‘kid’ my husband “made”. Back when he was ‘Annie’ πŸ˜‚ Except it’s a mashup, with one of my favorite shows... and here I am with a Galaxy on my Ass (Is it bigger on the inside?) hahaga. Hey? Did Annie make these droids or was it a Doctor. And which doctor would do something like that? Eleven of course. And who is he married to? River Mutha Lovin’ Song... and who was she before? A Bad Ass Black Woman. God damn. I Am River Song.” Hahahaha Sit Down Brain. You’re drunk. Yaaaaaaaaay πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Happy Friday Peeps! Have a great weekend and Bee Amazing to Yo’Self!!! #oliviaspoplife #colormeolivia #thebedrockunicorn #oliviacolorgoddess #maythefourthbewithyou #may4th2018 #edgeofchill #starwars #imarriedanakin #bodybyanakin #geekgirl #redwarriorwolf #iminlovewitharedwarrior #riversong #padme #strongwomen #doctorwho #oliviasthrivehive
Oh Lordt! Dear Prince Jesus, I pray that you bless your faithful Colorful Unicorn on this very sacred and holiest of days... of her people. Her MegaPod. She was SO unbelievably tired after this eventful week, and after her party last night she completely passed out after her very high flavor/high fat/high sugar meal of the most delicious PIZZA slices, with a side of their snack cakes. I totally blame the fact that they didn’t feed me before I worked the entire evening. I got ONE shrimp! Haha. So, my dear and beloved Music God. Please know that I am accepting the responsibility that I totally didn’t tend to my hair last night... and normally I would accept the consequences. But. Today... I absolutely cannot wear a headwrap!! Nooooooooo!! So please, send me some of your funky ultralight beam vibes on this morning, and help me get my Sith On! #oliviaspoplife #colormeolivia #thebedrockunicorn #oliviacolorgoddess #maythefourthbewithyou #may4th2018 #edgeofchill #accountmanager #careergirl #iinventedpostits #prince #nothingcompares2u #musiclover #starwars #imarriedanakin #bodybyanakin #geekgirl #redwarriorwolf #iminlovewitharedwarrior #yogaeverydamnday #myreligion #mysuperpod #oliviasmegapod
Just remembering a chuckle-worthy moment from my yoga class this past Tuesday. As part of my healing journey, I assist/steward for a prenatal class once a week... they actually honored me, and asked me to help with another class during the week, but right now I do not have any more free time ☹️ One Day!! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™‹πŸ½‍β™€οΈπŸ˜¬ Anywho, during our pre-check in, a couple of mothers requested some pelvic floor “strengthening” work. Obviously! So in the middle of our practice, Marti has us kneeling down on the our mat, in this FIERCE Momma-friendly back-bend [using our blocks for support]... and I am holding that pose for everything, and breathing right along like I am carrying something special too. My head was hanging back like everyone else, but as I was due for a visit to the chiropractor (she fit me in this week! πŸ™ŒπŸ½), I lifted it up for a moment to stretch out my neck, JUST as Marti says to us... “And now your Yoni should be staring across the room at the opposite wall.” πŸ€— And I immediately locked eyes with a new mom across the room, who had joined the class that evening and was also looking forward at me... so I immediately opened my mouth in between breathes, and I said... “Hi!” πŸ™‹πŸ½‍♀️ Needless to say, my corner of the room suddenly broke out into a fit of giggles, because [WHOSE Yoni said that?!]... while we still held that back bend. My Moms ARE AMAZING!! And, we are also pretty damn hilarious. Meanwhile, my Yoni is out here making friends.

Three years with Cosentino today. I had a fun anniversary. Met a puppy named Boscoe. Did my favorite yoga pose on a tree stump. Wondered if those reds were supposed to match on that KFC building. Maybe found a cleaning service, I liked that they were using green products. And met my boss out at one of my accounts. Also. My shirt has dinosaurs on them. #dinosaurs #accountmanager #treepose #threeyears #colormeolivia #oliviacolorgoddess #msoliviasneighborhood #cosentinosanfrancisco #careergirl #iinventedpostits #oliviaspoplife #thebedrockunicorn #theaccidentalmentor
I had a lovely opportunity this morning to sit in front of an awesome group of designers, for a PK lunch-and-learn on Dekton and Silestone. A very big Thank You to Mollyanne Sherman /MAC Design  macdesignstudio.com for having Cosentino in, to partner with you and CCIDC. Happy Saturday Everyone... and Good Luck Designers on your exam! #cosentinosanfrancisco #cosentinosf #cosentinosurfaces #dekton #silestone #sensa #scalea #prexury #brandloyalty #macdesign #ccidc #accountmanager #careergirl #iinventedpostits #colormeinspired #teamolivia #oliviacolorgoddess #colormeolivia #beeamazingtoyoself #msoliviasneighborhood #thebedrockunicorn #theaccidentalmentor #wonderwoman #kitchenandbathdesigner #felixfelicis #workingonasaturday #uniforms
Ah....Yes. Once or twice in a quarter-year, The Lady Arabella must descend from her palace [scratch that]... she must journey from her moderately priced country home [in the suburbs] and she will work alongside her fellow craftsmen. While it’s true that she does seem to have the life of leisure; sometimes even she, must go out and work for the ‘man’... on a Saturday. Haha! And I’m actually in a uniform today... Legit AF!! πŸ€” *pondering* must look into those ghostbuster-style coveralls... with my name embroidered on it. Yaaaaaaas!! Happy Saturday Peeps! Bee Amazing to Yo’Self.... and everyone else!! #colormeinspired #teamolivia #msoliviasneighborhood #oliviacolorgoddess #colormeolivia #beeamazingtoyoself #titusandarabella #cosentinosanfrancisco #cosentinosf #cosentinosurfaces #dekton #silestone #sensa #scalea #prexury #brandloyalty #marketing #accountmanager #careergirl #iinventedpostits #thebedrockunicorn #theaccidentalmentor #wonderwoman #kitchenandbathdesigner #felixfelicis #workingonasaturday #uniforms
Visiting some of my Orange Girls!! Playing a little “ColorMeOlivia” game. Zainab looks amazing with these colors!! I came in GREY today πŸ™„ I should have totally tried matching my new a Galaxy Hair! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ’œπŸ’–πŸ’™βœ¨ Hope everyone has a Colorful Weekend planned! #beeamazingtoyoself #msoliviasneighborhood #colormeolivia ##cosentinosanfrancisco #cosentinosurfaces #accountmanager #careergirl #iinventedpostits #oliviacolorgoddess
While the boys talk “shop”... I’ll go ahead and take care of the heavy lifting. Hahaha πŸ˜‚ #msoliviasneighborhood #colormeolivia ##cosentinosanfrancisco #cosentinosurfaces #accountmanager #careergirl #iinventedpostits #oliviacolorgoddess
Starting my day... out the door early this morning, already at my first appointment and feeling fabulous AF. #beeamazingtoyoself #msoliviasneighborhood #colormeolivia #oliviacolorgoddess
So yeah. I just finished steam cleaning another section of my carpets about 30 minutes ago. I know it’s after 12, but I’m in a time crunch because the new sofa comes Sunday and I’m trying to clean under πŸ™ŒπŸ½BookπŸ™ŒπŸ½ cases that never move. And I figured I would never get an opportunity to do this again, because once the sofa is in... I wouldn’t have the space to maneuver so easily. And I don’t want to move these shelves again. They’re so heavy [especially since I’m moving them by myself... just like the good ole days!] But a huge bonus, is that I totally had another “creative idea” tempt me. Things are slowly progressing along. I knew it would take some time, because I am working that deep kind of clean into this home. I’m getting it ready for change... because it’s happening whether we are ready or not. For instance: my husband and I recently started dating each other again... and this time, I’m ready for him to move in with me. πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ½‍β™€οΈπŸ˜ And I’m ready to stop calling it my apartment. Because it was. But now, I really like referring to it, as... our home. Also. We are getting furbabies soon. I have to make room for a tree πŸ’–πŸ¦πŸŒ³ #oliviaandbear #iheartmybear #titusandarabella #oliviasthrivehive #oliviacolorgoddess #colormeolivia #theaccidentalmentor #thebedrockunicorn #edgeofchill #relationshipgoals #springcleaning
I finally made it to the next stage of a creative project that I started back in January... and [finally] made it to the post office to mail something I [promised] to do, back in January. πŸ™„ In my defense... I underestimated how long something would take... and I didn’t realize I would have trips planned here and there. But I also had to figure out how to do something, and now I have a system! πŸ™ŒπŸ½ So, despite the time it took... I think the Universe appreciated my tenacity for sticking with something that’s important, and my follow-thru, and problem solving for figuring things out. I especially think the Universe was pleased that I got this in the mail today because they know how hard it is for me to get to the post office... it’s my kryptonite. Seriously. If I have to mail them... my sisters get their birthday/Christmas presents late every year. Late? [or early] depending on your perspective. Haha. Christmas in July is a real thing with me. But on Saturday, I gave myself a non-negotiable date, and I stayed up late to make it. So here I am today, proud of myself for getting to the post office this afternoon, and sticking to my plan. And I guess the Universe thought I was pretty awesome too... because when I got home, I HAD presents in the mail x3!!! Two awesome pins and a limited edition, eery, but gorgeous deck of tarot cards πŸ’–πŸ”₯πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Granted. I bought these pins myself... I’m bringing back ‘ironic pin-covered’ 80’s Jean Jackets. πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ½‍♀️ But I bought them days apart, and Bear gifted me the deck. The cool thing is that they all arrived today... and that’s just awesome synchronicity. I love that kind of magic. 😍 Thank you, Universe! And I won’t even tell you that I shuffled the deck x3, and the card I pulled was... The Magician. πŸ™‹πŸ½‍♀️ #colormeolivia #oliviacolorgoddess #colormeinspired #thebedrockunicorn #edgeofchill @pink_clown @wokeface @natehillyer
When Frida is on the lookout. πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™‹πŸ½‍β™€οΈπŸ΅ Got my fellow creative goddess riding sidekick, and helping me work on my control issues. We totally held it together, and my head literally did not explode. Thank you little sister, you were right. I don’t have to “match” to work... I still function just fine. It’s fun living on the edge. πŸ’–πŸ§˜πŸ½‍♀️πŸ”₯ #oliviacolorgoddess #colormeolivia #edgeofchill #fridakahlo #mixmatchsocks #thebedrockunicorn #theaccidentalmentor
